FATIHA ZEMMOURI

Born in 1966, Fatiha Zemmouri graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Casablanca. Her work combines sculpture, painting and collage, and often works on polymorphic artworks, through which she conducts in-depth reflection on the concepts of construction, deconstruction, regeneration and transformation.

His use of raw materials such as charcoal, calcined wood, ceramics and porcelain reveals his keen interest in natural matter and phenomena (water, fire and earth). Through her works, Fatiha Zemmouri seeks to better understand natural processes by examining the transformation of material. By employing techniques such as combustion or laceration, the artist experiments with a variety of materials to give substance to meditative, poetic and often minimalist works that challenge us on the notions of gravity, physical existence or alchemy.

In all her creations, Fatiha uses an abstract vocabulary designed to better simplify the forms of nature. The fine and fragile materials she uses give her work a poetic character.

She has participated in numerous exhibitions and her artworks are presented in several major national and international collections.

She lives and works in Casablanca.
